For sale:

Sumiko MDC-800 comes with 2 counter weights. One for light carts (L) and the other is for heavy carts (H). Plus I have 2 cables for it. One direct to your pre or one that you can connect your favorite interconnects to. It also has the set up jig so you can easily set up your cartridge then place it on the turntable ready to be played. The MDC-800 is based on the Breuer tonearms. It's actually a copy but I'd say they are pretty much the same.

Quote from stereophile:

"The Sumiko MDC 800 ("The Arm"), though now discontinued, has become something of a modern classic. Handmade in the state of Washington, it is an exquisite example of the machinist's craft. The Arm was fabricated from machined aluminum, and pressure-fitted by hand to avoid the introduction of a different material at the mechanical interfaces. The bearing assembly is the best I have ever seen in a tonearm. The Arm has incredible bass, and takes even more information off the record than the Alphason."

The arm lift cylinder was replaced with another from a different tonearm.

This is the most complete Sumiko MDC-800 I have ever seen or come across. I even have the original box it came with as seen in the photos.

If interested call or removed phone number for privacy



Tonearm, original box, copy of manual from The Vinyl Engine, 2 original cables, tonearm lift, L and H counterweights and the set up jig with set up base. Basically everything it came with when brand new!!
